bothersome. The jacket seems shorter in the front than I am used to, though it is amply long in the back. I was surprised that reaching forward with both arms together, such as to load a bag, was restricted, despite the sizing being appropriate for me. I did not experience this kind of restriction while riding my G 650 GS, but I did when in the extended riding position on an S 1000 RR. I will disclose that my shoulders are a bit


broader, and I have an ape index of +4, which is great for rock climbing, but means long sleeves are usually two inches too short. My suspicion that both could be the reason for the restrictiveness was proved accurate when I had a friend my size but with normal proportions try on the Air- wave 2 jacket. She was immediately impressed that it didn’t feel bulky, and she liked its European cut, feeling no restric-


tiveness in the shoulders. My color choice for my Ladies Airwave 2


was the silver-black jacket and silver trou- sers. The silver/grey color of the mesh is more distinct than the stock images of the items, and so have more of a contrast against the whiter-grey solid fabric. If one is going for a slimmer look, the all-black, par- ticularly in the pants, should probably be considered. The REV’IT Airwave 2 ladies jacket car-


ries a MSRP of $299.99, and the pants cost $209.99. I would definitely recommend the set. Actually, while riding I would forget I was wearing protective gear until a breeze would press the thicker textile against my body. The only thing you won’t get while wearing the Airwave 2 is a suntan.


PROS:


• Incredibly light and comfortable, feels like wearing nothing!


• Good pocket space. • Provides full protection for the woman rider (hip armor included) while allowing excellent airflow.


CONS:


• Can feel restrictive around the shoulders when arms extended, depending upon rider’s build and bike.


• Pants come up a bit short when in the rid- ing position (having a “tall” inseam ver- sion for the smaller sizes would likely remedy this).


• Leg zipper not long enough to for pants to come on or off over boots.
